GENEVA – Two authors are hosting a mother-daughter tea event at the Little Traveler in Geneva, which aims to help girls feel confident in their skin by wearing comfortable clothes.
Fashion consultant Jackie Walker and fashion writer Pamela Dittmer McKuen have written a book, “Expressionista: How to Express Your True Self Through (and Despite) Fashion,” which helps girls “ditch their fashion doubts, love what they wear and accept who they are,” according to a news release.
The event take will be from 9 to 11 a.m. Saturday at the Little Traveler, 404 S. Third St., Geneva, and the $15 ticket covers breakfast and a seminar. The event is geared toward girls ages 8 through 12.
Dittmer McKuen and Walker plan to help girls learn how to dress for their body type, develop confidence in their fashion choices, track fashion trends, shop on a budget and organize their closet through quizzes, tips and relatable case studies, states the news release.
Walker is a longtime fashion consultant and co-author of “I Don’t Have a Thing to Wear,” which helps women have a healthy relationship with their clothes. She has spoken to businesses such as Neiman Marcus, Saks Fifth Avenue and Nordstrom. Dittmer McKuen is a full-time fashion and feature writer who writes home features for the Chicago Tribune and Chicago Life, a magazine that appears in regional editions of the New York Times and the Wall Street Journal.
